Why redevelop the main street?
The Shire of Augusta Margaret River is committed to meeting the strong desire of the community to increase pedestrian safety and manage traffic flows in town. It also fully supports creating opportunities for businesses to flourish, showcasing the Margaret River region and brand to support the prosperity of our region as a whole.

How will it enhance the main street?
The redevelopment of our main street will improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists accessing our town centre. The main street and surrounding areas will be transformed, making our town centre an attractive, modern, international tourist destination. Plans will incorporate al fresco dining areas, beautiful landscaping, street furniture, mood lighting, public art works and wider footpaths.
